Hi everyone,

I am having trouble with a search engine that keeps re-installing itself on my pc namely AAAwebsearch. When I delete all te AAAwebsearch files with hijackthis it only works temporarily. Maybe i have other corrupt files wich I may not recognize. Help would be appreciated.

Hey Ball0on

I believe your pc is infected with a worm. Would you please scan your computer with Housecall

Post a fresh HJT log for a moderator to look over

Hi
Make sure you have already run Adaware, Spybot S & D(check for updates) and  as these will do a preliminary clean first.Some files below may not be present after running the above programs.

Then.....
Turn off your System Restore. http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;%5BLN%5D;310405] See Here.Reinstate it and create an new restore point when your log is cleaned.Close your browser window and run hjt in safe mode... http://service1.symantec.com/SUPPORT/tsgeninfo.nsf/docid/2001052409420406?OpenDocument&src=sec_doc_nam] How To Run Safemode  and have "Hijack This" fix the following by placing a check in the appropriate boxes and selecting "fix checked". Files highlighted in BLACK will need to be removed from your hard drive. Make sure to have your system set to show hidden files and folders..www.xtra.co.nz/help/0,,4155-1916458,00.html] How To Show Files .Please post a new log when finished...

Hey man thanks for the help but you see, I think its spy sweeper that keeps returning websearch. Everytime the homepage was altered I said restore even though I didnt have websearch as my main page in the option but everytime i clicked restore and did a scan with hijack after, aflashcounter would be back so now its gone and it looks like its fixed. Anyway I'll c how it progresses from here, thanks alot.
